Decor Trends: Deer Mounts and Busts

Pin It
 My husband is an avid hunter and he would always 'joke' about having multiple deer and elk mounts in our living room. We have a two story living room, so his vision was having mounts all the way up to the ceilings. Probably something quite similar to this...

Well, luckily that hasn't happened. I've managed to keep all taxidermy away from our main living spaces. But, I do use the antler sheds he finds and incorporate them into some of my decor.

As the years have passed, I've realized how fun it would be to incorporate a deer bust. Real or faux. I'm loving this trend...although it's been around for a few years, I'm hoping it doesn't go out anytime soon! Here's a look at great ways to add this trend into your home decor.

I love the simplicity of this deer bust against the black circle. This would also look amazing like this above a fireplace mantel.

I can't really tell what these are made off, paper mache? Cardboard? Either way, this is a great look for a guest room.

I've mentioned my love for this exact deer bust in a post awhile back, and this makes me want to go and buy it all over again! Simply gorgeous.

This is a great way to use real deer antler mounts without looking completely lodge-y or cabin-esque. Even the antler chandelier is perfect in here...and I gotta say, I'm really not a fan of those. But it works great in the space. This is a for sure way to make both sides happy...beautiful and masculine at the same time :)

This is just an amazing faux mount here. Brings the simplicity of this room to a whole new degree...and lets just check out those planked walls for a bit too :) Perfection.

The Nester does amazing things, and this is just complete perfection. I love the contrast of the white mount against the wall and how there's nothing else on this top of the wall.

Another great use of contrast here on this chalkboard wall with the white deer mount. I've gotta say, this wall almost makes me want to have a black wall in my house..almost ;)

Another take on simplicity with this faux mount. Nothing else is needed above the fireplace.

Faux mounts don't have to be 3 dimensional to be perfect. Take this cute little taped 'mount' in this room. Cute idea for Christmas too!

Once again, gold and white equals love in this space. The cute little flower helps too :)

Not all mounts have to be deer or elk related as shown here from ZGallerie. I'm thinking that mounts and busts are "in"! These aren't going anywhere soon :)

Does this make you want to decorate with mounts all over you house? It makes me! I have my gazelle that I love, but it has fallen off the wall three times too many. But I loved it while it lasted!

  3. I love your blog, admire all your hard work and admit I even steal some of your ideas. Just so you know, what is going to seem negative is actually an inquiry. My main question is why would anyone want a dead animal head in their home - much less staring at them. I get that hunters look at them as trophies -- sad -- when probably most husters lure their prey to them -- not exactly an evenly matched trophy game. I get the magnificence of the animal -- majestic - yes -- but cannot for the life of me think about hanging one. Please explain this allure to animal heads.... I've been asking this question for a long time.
